Hotwire, one of the leading US fiber-optic telecommunications providers specializing in residential and commercial services, will deploy Nokia's XGS-PON1 fiber solution to enhance its network and deliver new, high-quality 10Gbps broadband services to its customers.

The roll-out brings some of the fastest broadband speeds to Hotwire's Florida and North Carolina customers, including Salisbury, North Carolina - Hotwire's latest public-private partnership - and will expand to support other such partnerships in the future.

Hotwire's deployment of Nokia's XGS-PON solution reflects its commitment to continually develop the capabilities and speed of its market-leading network, and is an important step towards extending new ultra-broadband services such as streaming video in 4k, 8k and 12k. The deployment also provides a cost-effective upgrade path for Hotwire's existing fiber network, which covers most of the US east coast, allowing the company to seamlessly move from GPON (2.5Gbps) to XGS-PON (10Gbps) using the same access node.

Jonathan Bullock, VP of Corporate Development & Goverment, Hotwire
From the beginning, Hotwire has focused on deploying cutting-edge technology to ensure our customers experience the very best of broadband. This is why we invest in future-proof fiber and build direct fiber infrastructure into every home and business we serve. 

Federico Guillen, President of Nokia Fixed Networks Business Group
We are excited to help Hotwire kick off their 10Gbps service and provide the tools, resources and expertise they need to deliver better, faster and smarter ultra-broadband access to customers in Florida and North Carolina.
